Las Posadas celebrated at St. Edward's University

The public is invited to at a Mexican Christmas Celebration, "Las Posadas," at St. Edward's University on Thursday, Dec. 6, at 6 p.m. in the front of the Main Building on campus.

"Las Posadas" is one of the strongest and colorful Hispanic traditions, typically celebrated every evening from Dec. 16-24. The celebration commemorates Joseph and Mary's cold and difficulty journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of shelter. At the end of journey when shelter is finally provided, there is a social celebration with food, music and pinatas, paying a festive homage to the journey. The simulation will include walking to eight locations on campus and reciting music verses, ending at the Maloney Room in the Main Building for the celebratory part of the program.

Please contact Corina Ramos at 389-3672 with any questions.

Founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross, St. Edward's University is an independent Catholic liberal arts university of 4,100 students in Austin.
